Family Support Center
Located in St. Petersburg
Georgievsky is one of the largest districts in St. Petersburg, and is the home to an initiative dedicated to finding homes for orphans through foster care, kinship, and adoption. The Family Support Center is a community-based program overseeing 100 families with children ranging in age from infant to 18. Training, support, and wraparound care is provided to each of the families. Additionally, staff psychologists and social workers provide each new child who is orphaned with personalized care. They assess which family will be the right match, and they also identify at-risk families and work with them to either grow stronger or to find safe alternatives for the children. The goal is to reduce abandonment by creating healthy family structure.
Orphan Outreach has supported the Georgievksy Municipal Program and its director, Anatoly Ulianov, since 2018, ensuring the program has the resources it needs to provide for the physical, medical, legal, and educational needs of the children and families.
